KUALA LUMPUR: The National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) has asked the National Key Results Area (NKRA) unit in the Education Ministry to improve the online school examination analysis system, known as SAPS, immediately.
NUTP secretary-general Loke Yim Phing said the union had received numerous complaints on SAPS from teachers throughout the country.
SAPS was introduced in July to centralise examination results from all states.
“The teachers are stressed out waiting for hours to key in the data,” she said at Wisma NUTP here yesterday.
Loke voiced her concern over classroom lessons being affected because teachers were too busy keying in data while the system was working during school hours.
She suggested that the NKRA unit extend the deadline from Aug 15 to the end of the month.
The school exams online data analysis system is not working out well as teachers complained that it was not user-friendly and slow.
The system, known as System of Analysis for School Examination, has caused frustration among teachers.
Under the Education National Key Result Area initiative, teachers are required to submit the exam data online.
Many teachers described the portal as “extremely slow” and not user-friendly.
“The system often hangs due to heavy traffic. We are advised to use it late at night or early in the morning when the portal is less busy,” said a teacher. Bernama
